|A wooden cheese plate with glass cover, upturned bowl of floor-standing candle holder, and an old liqueur bottle (there was even a little bit of liqueur left in the bottle!).|
After applying some weld lines and rivets to the wooden cheese plate, I painted on some iron paint and applied a rusting solution. While I waited for the rust to develop, I applied a copper band to the rim and the handle of the glass cover, and dripped on some patina solution. After a few hours of (very impatient) waiting time, this is what I ended up with!
Next up, the glass bowl which originally sat in an iron stand, now discarded. I upturned the bowl and turned it into a dome. Using puffy paint (yes, the kind that comes in squeeze bottles) I dotted the lip of the dome with large dots (faux rivets) and applied copper to the whole lip. A little patina solution and I have a display dome suitable for Capt. Nemo's parlor.
